I was wondering if there was a limit to the amount of wolves you can have in Minecraft. I have seen a lot of videos of people with a lot of wolves. Just wondering how because there is a limit to the number of mobs that can spawn around you. I would like to know if everything written here can be done legit.

There is no limit to the amount of wolves you can have at a time tamed. However, there is a limit of about 6 wolves that can be naturally spawned in a about 30 block radius untamed. This also applies to hostile mobs. Passive mobs (like cows, sheep, etc.) have a different spawn limit. For more information, see "Spawning" on the "Wolf" page at Minecraft Wiki.

Yeah but is there a limit to how many you can in one place at the same time... Like spawned naturally! –  ToazterWafflez Apr 28 '12 at 16:54
This answer isn't very descriptive @PaulBreeze. Are you talking about wolves spawned via commands? Please clarify. –  GnomeSlice Apr 28 '12 at 17:31
I think I clarified –  ToazterWafflez Apr 28 '12 at 17:52
